|The views of six samaṇa in the Pāli Canon|
(based on the Buddhist text Sāmaññaphala Sutta1)
|පූර්ණ කාශ්යප||Amoralism: denies any reward or|
punishment for either good or bad deeds.
|Niyativāda (Fatalism): we are powerless;|
suffering is pre-destined.
|Materialism: live happily;|
with death, all is annihilated.
|පකුද කච්චායන||Sassatavada (Eternalism):|
Matter, pleasure, pain and the soul are eternal and
do not interact.
|Restraint: be endowed with, cleansed by|
and suffused with the avoidance of all evil.2
|Agnosticism: "I don't think so. I don't think in that|
way or otherwise. I don't think not or not not."
Suspension of judgement.
